Welcome to the Oil and Gas Discoverer, LLC (“OGD”) website where we have presented a more detailed explanation, along with new illustrations of our unique, proprietary, and environmentally benign space-based technology, Direct Detection Technology™ (“DDT™”). Our website will offer you a more comprehensive understanding of our geophysical technology and can provide a better technology for your exploration. The use of DDT™ will save a great deal of time, cost less money, and will provide definitive information as to whether you have a reliable economic resource.

The initial two illustrations are (1) a representation of the typical helicopter tracks used when performing a DDT™ Stage 2 Survey; and (2) a 3D illustration of the subsurface hydrocarbon-bearing formations identified by analysis of the “intrinsic radiation” anomalies on the left side compared to the stratigraphic column on the right side provided by a Customer based  on their geological work plus their 2D and 3D seismics interpretations as well as the results of their initial well drilling. Our hope is that the following revision of the website will offer you a better understanding of our technology, i.e., DDT™.


Our goal as Oil and Gas Discoverer, LLC., is to bring geophysical surveys into the modern world; the world of internet applications and on-demand web services. Our revolutionary satellite imaging technology (DDT™) has helped customers detect the presence of copper, gold, silver, diamonds, REE, as well as oil- and gas-bearing reservoirs for over 20 years at a fraction of the cost and time of conventional exploration methods.

In 2015, we revamped our field survey equipment and redesigned our image processing nanotechnology to its 5th, and most advanced, generation. In the past, we hand-crafted each survey on a case-by-case basis. Now, we want to expand our reach to customers from all across the globe who will require nothing more than access to the Internet. With your help, we can deliver high-accuracy, low-cost DDT™ geophysical surveys to customers 5 - 10 times faster than all competing survey methodologies. Customers will survey their land as fast as they can Google… well, almost. ;-)

Traditional exploration requires performing seismic exploration that can result in the potential harm to ecosystems and follow on drilling of test holes.

02 /  

Conventional surveyors must require land rights, permits, and other legal prerequisites before a survey can be performed. Using DDT™’s non-invasive approach, OGD can execute surveys prior to assuming those risks.

03 / 

Typical surveys of

10,000 km² require approximately 2 to 3 years to complete. Using DDT™,

our technology can reduce this to 6 months or less.

04 / 

DDT™ can provide critical data regarding the mass and depth of each deposit, thereby eliminating false positives.



DDT™ Stage One Surveys can best be performed in the early stages of an exploration project; in fact, before any extensive geological, geochemical, and/or traditional geophysical methods are conducted. The results of DDT™ Stage One Surveys allow one to establish the fact of whether the targeted underground resource (e.g., hydrocarbons) is present or not in the surveyed territory and how it is territorially confined. This provides invaluable information to guide the planning and placement of traditional exploration surveys.


Every element in the Earth’s crust exists in an excited state and emits an "intrinsic radiation" spectrum. This spectrum has a unique amplitude, frequency, and phase.


Gold, silver, copper, coal, diamonds, REE, and hydrocarbon sources all generate intrinsic emissions which leave distinctive signatures, or echoes. We can observe these echoes on satellite images processed in our laboratory.

Direct Detection Technology™ was developed to discover these mineral resources. And it does so by tracking the reflections and echoes of their intrinsic emissions reflected on satellite imagery.

Similar to the development of seismic exploration data collection and presentation, OGD advanced from 2D to 3D presentations of DDT™ data in 2015 with the conversion of our software and equipment to 5th generation data collection and analysis. The 5th generation of DDT™ data in 3D is provided in the A-B combination in the figure. An example of the same Customer survey area with our earlier generations of DDT™ data in 2D is presented in the C portion of the figure. Note the blue- lined areas in A, B, and C, which designates the Customer’s concessions while the red-lined area indicates the primary area covered by the DDT™ surveys.


The offshore versus onshore concessions are clearly identified in B. Predominate red areas in A and C indicate the highest hydrocarbon “intrinsic radiation” anomalies; however, a significant number of the high intensity anomalies occur outside the Customer’s concessions. Based on the 3D data presentation in A-B, the lack of hydrocarbon anomalies offshore is readily apparent versus the questionable small red areas in the 2D data presentation in C. In addition, the 3D data presentation in A provides an excellent representation of the hydrocarbon “intrinsic radiation” spectra with its frequency and amplitude readily apparent.




Analog satellite images obtained from space are collected and sent back to Earth.

In the OGD laboratory, DDT™ records and identifies all unique mineral spectra. This is critical because it eliminates the possibility of mistaking any mineral for one of its isotopes: coal carbon versus diamond carbon, for example. Despite the similarity of their chemical compositions, their "intrinsic radiation" spectra reveal differences which make it possible to distinguish them.

2nd Stage/

DDT™ is a proprietary technology which we’ve used in geophysical surveys for more than 20 years. Today, with the rapid improvement of microchip technology and vast increase in computing power, DDT™ is presently using fifth (5th) generation satellite image processing and survey equipment which we’ve tested and successfully employed since 2015.

One of the important characteristics of the DDT™ field equipment is that we design, build, and incorporate Mono-Spectrometers in our field equipment. The Mono-Spectrometer is integrated into one of the components of the field equipment and is calibrated for specific or a particular single element or compound that is being sought in the Earth’s subsurface.
